April 24, 2009
PHILADELPHIA, PA - Redshirt sophomore Megan Hogan has made her presence known since walking onto the George Washington campus last fall and continued her amazing year-long run on Thursday when she won the Penn Relays spring race by over 44 seconds.
She finished with a time of 33:55:23, which is a school record and also was the first George Washington cross country runner to win the competition.
Hogan also just missed obtaining the `B' Standard for the USA Track & Field National Championships. She fell short by .23 seconds, as the `B' Standard time is 33:55.00, and she ran 33:55.23.
Head Coach Brian Beil was very satisfied with Hogan's effort. "I couldn't be more proud of Megan," said Beil. "In just her second year of running she's gone from being a virtual nobody in the sport, to one of the stronger collegiate distance runners in the country. Her achievements on the track this year are a testament to the hard work she's put in over the past year, and the positive training environment so many people have helped to create here at George Washington. We're all excited about what the future holds for Megan and her teammates in the months and years to come."
